I found this show on Netflix and binge watched the first season. I found it refreshing in the way they approached a mix of well-known and almost unknown themes. For example, they not only reexamined the John Kennedy assassination, they re-enacted it with more detail than any other program I've seen. The same with the Martin Luther King assassination. I learned so much from both episodes. They also shed light on much lesser known stories, such as, how the Bureau of Land Mgmt breaks a lot of federal laws to deal with the wild mustangs on the western prairie. And a great piece on the population that lives beneath the strip of Las Vegas in the storm sewers. Like I said, a real mix of story themes and each one well done. I disagree with the person who attacked them for their story on how some jets can be mistaken for UFO's. The report was well done and very feasible. The reviewer failed to note that the series did two other programs on UFO's (the Marfa Lights and the White Sands testing grounds). I am sure that some UFO sightings are likely govt projects, yet I also believe many are not in that category, they're literally unexplainable. But I didn't feel like this program attacked that view. So I really hope they keep creating more episodes. Very good writing and producing here!
